If It Weren't So Tragic It Would Be Funny

This video fascinates me. No laughing; this is serious stuff because it influences so many people. I keep asking myself, "how can this be reality?". The same answer inevitably pops into my cluttered brain like one of those mole games in the Playland that you hit on the head with a mallet: “chaos theory and Murphy’s Law are the only drivers of reality, stupid. That's how.”

Good doctor Zakir Naik has dozens of videos on Youtube. This one is on the Islamic view of evolution.

I watched a few, and this is what he promulgates. Youtube is one place where he can’t get away with falsehoods and folderol, because not everyone is programmed in the madrassah school system. No wonder Pat Condell gets so angry.

Here’s some of the stuff he’s telling people on Youtube:

Charles Darwin did not agree with his own theory.
Allah demands every membot get married.
Allah blesses a couple for every baby they conceive.
Homosexuality is not genetic. (Therefore, it’s a choice that sinners make. They better not get caught or they'll wind up daggling from a pneumatic hoist at the end of a pick-up truck.)
There’s a test of some sort recommended in the Quran for female adultery.
In the United States, there would be much less robbery if the Quran were followed. Chopping off hands would cure the problem overnight. (He’s certainly correct, but what would be the cost to our psyche and sense of wellbeing?)
Christ did not claim to be God. (Then why did the Romans so matter-of-factly nail him to the cross?)
Embryos start off as leeches.
It is better to love to girl you marry, than to marry the girl you love. (What about happiness? We’re living in this world, not the next.)

The closest humanity ever came to God was Mozart. (This one’s mine.)

Any other observations will be appreciated.

Pharaohs did claim to be gods though, AND They did it BEFORE the Council of Nicea.

How about Caligula? He liked to compel a squad of slaves to lug his immense heavy golden sedan to the beach and command the tide to come in and it did. What more proof do you want that he was a god?

Jared, nothing like carrying out the tenets of the religion to their logical conclusion. A few times I told the story of Juan Pizarro, the Conquistador, who liked to smash Incan babies' heads against the rocks right after being baptized. When you think about it, this is pretty smart because the guaguas (Chilean for crying babies) go right to heaven like they had a get out of jail free card.

If "Allah blesses a couple for every baby they conceive.", then it is best for them to conceive and immediately abort; so, they can conceive again sooner without silly pregnancy getting in the way of them conceiving again.

No apologies necessary. The good doctor has no understanding of evolution yet he’s in a position to determine policy—at least among his own people.

He’s much like a 19th-century snake oil salesman selling a panacea that is nothing more than a placebo. His followers say their prayers five times a day and somehow feel good. I really don’t care what they believe; it’s just that I hate to see it happening.

I know this is kind of an ad hominem attack towards Zakir Naik, and I apologize for that, but... he actually looks unintelligent.

we are gods PughSalams: 82:6

are gods not accountable for their own actions?
humans are, so we are gods
and I have more than enough faith there is no god other than myself
nor shall any lord stand before myself

I'll die on my feet before that crap

Clarence, I see this guy disturbs you as much as he botheres me. I placed a comment on one of his videos and got back right away, "why do you want to disturb us from our beliefs?"

I didn't even reply—too long a story to answer. I think I'll look up the comment and just refer the person to check out Pat Condell's video on Islam.

What's a sock puppet?

Good one on chopping off hands. How about a comment on the video that Naik should be detongued because the Quran says "Thou shall tell the truth."

Charles Darwin did not agree with his own theory. Before or after it was published? No answer.
Allah demands every membot get married. But, not all temperaments are suited to that mode.
Allah blesses a couple for every baby they conceive. Sock puppets don't live.
Homosexuality is not genetic. (Therefore, it’s a choice that sinners make. They better not get caught or they'll wind up daggling from a pneumatic hoist at the end of a pick-up truck.) Dumb assed xenophobic ill-logic.
There’s a test of some sort recommended in the Quran for female adultery. Is it 2000 years old?
In the United States, there would be much less robbery if the Quran were followed. Chopping off hands would cure the problem overnight. (He’s certainly correct, but what would be the cost to our psyche and sense of wellbeing?) There would be less B.S. If we cut out B.Ser's tongues Doctor Naik.
Christ did not claim to be God. (Then why did the Romans so matter-of-factly nail him to the cross?) Pharaohs did claim to be gods though, AND They did it BEFORE the Council of Nicea and BEFORE Mohammed the Prophet. Also, the Emperors of Japan and China had some of that "god real estate".
Embryos start off as leeches. He's evading the philosophical law of identity. A thing is what it is according to it's nature, with respect to the facts, not what you imagine it to be out of personal whim.
It is better to love the girl you marry, than to marry the girl you love. (What about happiness? We’re living in this world, not the next.) Maybe the Elders are doing the picking there? Creepy ain't it?

Some more good ones:

Also, I and the Father are one.

Gen: In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. (So I guess the word = Jebus.)

And God was made flesh and dwelt among us.

When Jebus was baptized the Sky God said: “This is my beloved son with whom I am well pleased.”

Nerd, in Mark 14:61 and the high priest questioned him, “Are you the son of the Blessed One.”

Jebus: I am.

So I guess that makes him God.
